This morning ABC’s Good Morning America was live from outside World of Disney at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World for the official kick-off of Disney’s “Ultimate Toy Drive for Toys for Tots.”
During the broadcast, GMA‘s Gio Benitez presented a check for $500,000 from Disney to Toys to Tots, which was accepted by Marine Staff Sergeant Ash Jacques, who has volunteered with the program since he enlisted 15 years ago.
For more than 70 years, The Walt Disney Company has supported the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation to bring comfort, happiness and inspiration to children and families in need during the holiday season.
In fact, Walt Disney and his animators designed the original Toys for Tots train logo in 1947 that is still used today.
Now through Dec. 14, people can participate, and help bring more joy to children in need, by donating a toy online for the toy drive or at one of Disney’s theme park drop-off locations.
Donate a toy online at shopDisney.com or a new unwrapped toy in person at:
- Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort (Collection bins are located at the World of Disney store, Star Wars Trading Post, and Resort Hotel stores)
- Disney Springs at Walt Disney World (Collection bins are located at the World of Disney store, Marketplace Co-Op, Star Wars Galactic Outpost, and Disney Springs Welcome Center).
